DARYL THETFORD Graphic, Modern, Pop
Desert Art Collection
Wednesday, November 01 - Wednesday, November 15, 2017

10:00 am to 5:00 pm

Daryl’s work has been described as graphic, modern, pop, and contemporary, although what to actually call the process has been a larger source of debate; it has been called photo collage, digital art, and digital mixed media.  It is highly intellectual social commentary.
